Detectives with the Idaho State Police and the Bonners Ferry Police Department jailed a regional man on Thursday in connection with the March 12 murder of a chiropractic physician in his Bonners Ferry office.
The suspected killer, Daniel L. Moore, 63, was likewise a chiropractor, according to the Kootenai Valley Times.
Investigators dealing with the Boundary County and Kootenai County Prosecutor's Offices revealed “compelling” proof and a motive for the shooting, the release stated. But police has chosen not to launch those information to avoid interfering in judicial proceedings, the release stated.
Moore was arraigned on second-degree murder charges Friday morning in the Boundary County Courthouse and remains in the custody of the Boundary County Jail, according to an Idaho State Police press release.
The victim, Brian Drake, is endured by his better half and four kids. In a joint declaration, Drake's household described him as somebody who liked his clients and serving individuals.
“He brought joy and laughter to those around him,” the household wrote. “He had an incredible heart, and his loss has actually wrought a remarkable hole in our hearts. We will never ever understand the senselessness of the loss of Brian's life.”
Idaho State Police and Bonners Ferry Police worked “tirelessly and diligently” to find the thought murderer, the household's declaration stated.
“Still, those efforts can not change the reality,” the declaration read.
“His kids will grow up without the caring daddy who was their rock and champ. His bride-to-be will not grow old with him, sharing the joys and concerns of raising their kids together. We all stay ravaged and pray for justice.”
